The price at the pumps seem to be attached to a big helium balloon that’s taken flight and the sky is the limit! There’s no question that fuel prices are moving up at an unprecedented rate. As fuel becomes more expensive, its value to thieves becomes greater.
Twenty gallons of gas that you didn’t have to pay for can seem very enticing to those who don’t believe in respecting the property of others. Using crime preventive common sense can help you keep your gas in your tank!
-Consider a locking gas cap. This will significantly reduce the chances of someone siphoning the fuel from your tank.
-Park in well-lit, visible areas where a thief would be hard pressed to “secretly” siphon your gas.
-Keep an eye on your gas gauge. Some thieves try a less obvious approach by only removing small quantities, but on a regular basis.
Every type of effective theft prevention begins with awareness and making it less enticing for the criminals. Think one step ahead of them and you will be able to better protect your car, home and property.
